"I wish her nothing but the utmost love and happiness moving forward," he continued.

"All I'll say about it, anything else you hear doesn't matter."

Sprouse's Instagram post comes a day after Reinhart opened up about her battle with depression in interview with Refinery 29. 

The 23 year old reflected on how the coronavirus pandemic "has been the first time in four years where I've been able to like, stop and process the immense life changes that I've gone through."

"The last couple of months have probably [been] the most emotional few months of my entire life and my therapist [told] me, 'Your body's going through withdrawal from love,'" she said.

"You're used to having this exchange of happy chemicals between you and the person that you're with."

"In moments of my life, I have dropped every ounce of pride that I had just to be like, 'Love me. Please take the pain away for a day, a second, an hour,' just so I can feel that fix again."

Reinhart later clarified that her comments were not referencing her split from Sprouse. 

"Quotes taken from my most recent interview are not about a 'breakup,' " she wrote on Twitter.

"They are about the depression I've felt over these last few months. Tired of people taking my words out of context and piecing together their own story for clickbait."

"I would never speak so candidly about something as personal as a breakup," she added. "That's incredibly private. I was addressing my depression."

Both actors are attached to Riverdale Season 5, which is slated to air in January on The CW.
